New Year New Me!

2013 was a New Year that resulted in a New Me. 
Poor dead blog could have benefited from some wonderful happenings!
Hoping 2014 will change that! 

I bought myself a Christmas present last December.  I bought an Ignite Pack and it has rocked my world. 

The plan starts you out with a detox.  An 8 day challenge is what it is called.  Those 8 days began a transformation I never dreamed possible.  I was able to lose 12.4 pounds and many many inches.  My family joined me soon after and we could not be happier that we took on the challenge and made the changes.  We have lost 248 pounds as a family and are healthier than we have ever been.  I no longer take prescription medicines and have no need for steroid shots for my aching swollen joints.  One year and 65 pounds later I am feeling wonderful.  I sleep all night.  I eat healthier.  No more sugar addiction and no more soft drink addiction. 

I could not be happier with my small investment into my health. 

Can't wait to see what 2014 holds for me.   Oh wait  - it holds lots and lots of exciting things!  First up a challenge - body transformation challenge - Jan. 1-March 31!  Hope to blog about it along the way. 

But a very very important event becomes front and center of our attention over the next four months.  We will be having a May wedding and could not be happier for our daughter. 

Here's to 2014.  And for your curious eyes  - here's the evidence of 2013's transformation.  The Joy on the shirt was not evident on the face.  Praying the Joy of the Lord is my strength in 2014.
